What do u tow? Post pic of trailer.

Just curious what everyone tows with their Touareg ( meaning race cars, horses, etc..), if it's a V6, V8 or TDI and what kind of trailer?

I'm looking for a trailer to do odd jobs.
Thanks

Tregs are great tractors, more so if they drink diesel..........torque on tap! But, I wouldn't be testing out the 3500kg limit too often. I don't care what VW say about 3500kg capacity. Tow that weight too often and you'll blow your tranny and turbo/s. I always work off 75% of the max stated capacity and you'll be safe. I tow a 21' boat on a tandem, disc-braked trailer. It's a breeze.

You grey nomad, you I've just had my service done and the the Sam the Man bash plate goes on soon. A few mods I suspect with fasteners.

I'm another boatie tragic (as in where the cost of boat ownership far exceeds Treg ownership).
